I've heard a lot of questions regarding Remedy's Quantum Break and how these layoffs will affect the game's development, what with a show announced to complement the game. I haven't heard anything official regarding the subject just yet, but I'm keeping my eye out.

That 18,000 layoffs sure doesn't bode well. R.I.P Xbox.

Nothing to do with Xbox dying. They're restructuring into more gaming than media.

Apparently at least 12,500 are coming from Nokia, which Microsoft acquired not so long ago.

It's not surprising that they made cuts, considering they acquired Nokia within the past 12 months. Usually they make cuts when doing such things. Kinda glad that they are going to shift the focus back to games a little more. Hope all those affected by the layoffs find jobs quickly. Nobody ever wants to see mass layoffs, but that's what business's do at times.
